6 adventurous activities in Qatar for adrenaline

From flying over Doha’s most famous sites to discovering the marvels of Qatar’s desert and sea, here are six adventurous activities for you to explore the country.


By riding in a three-wheel motor car attached to a paraglider, you can enjoy an aerial trip of the country’s capital and savour the breathtaking sceneries of the city, the desert, and the sea.

Helicopter Tour of Doha

Escape the whirring roads of Doha and get on a 30-minute jaunt into the city’s skyline to enjoy the view of Qatar’s spectacular skyscrapers and cultural hubs like The Pearl-Qatar, the Zigzag Towers, the Corniche and Katara.

Scuba Diving

In addition to the spectacular aerial landscapes and the dazzling desert, Qatar’s sea life does not fall short in being magnificent itself. Learn to dive with professional guides at one of Doha’s diving sites to explore the sea wrecks and the wide range of marine life like turtles, sea bream, needlefish, whale sharks and even some endangered species like the dugong.

Jet Skiing

There is no better way to evade humidity than taking on an exciting adventure and jet skiing over the sea waves while enjoying the refreshens of water and beautiful sunsets.

Dune Bashing

Get on the passenger seat with one of the country’s professional 4X4 drivers and experience the rush with their incredible acrobatic skills in bashing through sand dunes.

Quad Biking

Another way to explore the desert is to immerse yourself in the beauty of its sun and embrace the rush of racing through sand dunes with a guided excursion on a quad.
